The driver had been waving to a friend in the stationary vehicle when the collision occurred, according to Southsea fire station acting manager Simon Haswell.

He said: ‘She was only distracted for a moment.’

‘t was an unusual one – it looks like the front left of the car that flipped hit the back right of the stationary car and it was like a corner to corner collision.

‘It was almost parallel to the parked car.’

A male passenger in the overturned car was not reported as suffering any injuries.

A third vehicle – a a Honda Jazz – was also caught in the collision, a spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary confirmed.

A passer-by, who lives in Southsea, said: ‘The car was a mess, and the road was closed both ways.

‘Someone had put out cones to stop traffic.’
